I haven't posted much lately, mainly because I haven't had much to say.
I've never been really lean, it's always been a struggle. getting down to a small waist has always meant losing muscle for me. Gaining size is no issue, it's just that when I pound the food, fat quickly follows. If you look at my bio, you can see that I have had a problem with weight in the past, and to get it off, paleo/primal has been my rock.
Recently I tried Advocare, (for the blog - article soon). When going down that path, I had hoped Advocare would be a magic bullet, that would get me to that extra level of lean I have always wanted. Sadly, Advocare was not the answer, not even close.
Not wanting to stay with the satus quo, I began Eat To Perform a couple of weeks back. I wanted to bash them today when I looked at myself in the mirror. Gaining nearly two inches on my waist and looking like the stay puff guy in the mirror is not what I was after. I wanted to bash them bad, but after reviewing myfitness pal food log, and what I ate during my rest days the past two weeks, I find the fault with me, not their program.

April Sherman defines what it is to be fit over 40. There are many people out there that will spew advice, peddle products and give second hand advice. Then there are others that live what they preach. The owner of fitmom40.com, an avid adventure racer, mom, wife, and all around fire breather, was kind enough to answer a few questions I had about what to expect for my first Spartan Race coming up in June.
I am a firm believer in getting advice from a reputable source. If you live it, eat it and breath it, I’ll listen. In fact I will actively seek out those that are successful in their niche.
My reasoning is simple; you can’t know everything and instead of going through your own trial and error, use what other experts have learned from their own personal experiences, to help you excel in your endeavors.
When it comes to adventure racing, April is that source. If you have read any of my posts on G+, or bilderz.com you will know that I am making an effort to change focus in my yearly goal setting and have broadened my horizons to include at least one or two adventure races this next year.
Even though I’ve run numerous races in the past, the Spartan and the eight plus mile distance is new to me. I hate being un-prepared, so these are the questions I had, so thought I’d share. If you are new to adventure racing or want to move up your game a bit, read on.
